92--------
93
94  *  A functioning (A)MOP implementation through the hard work of Rudi
95     Schlatte (@rudi)
96
97  *  The implementation can be used across many more Quicklisp systems
98     through a process of extensive testing.  Thanks @xach!
99
100     Nota bene: all of the following systems need patches to work as
101     of the 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  All patches have been accepted in
102     at least an initial form by the upstream maintainers.
103
104     ** CLOSER-MOP
105        Quite possible with local patches
106     ** CFFI
107       Needs patches to 2012-10-13 Quicklisp.  [!!?]
108       *** Dynamic interfaces idempotent across process -- no more reloading
109     ** HUNCHENTOOT
110       *** some bugs with underlying streams to be fixed in abcl-1.2-dev
111     ** CXML
112        Basic XML parsing works.  XPath still borked. [???]     
113  *  Java 5 bytecode Compiler
114
115     The internal Lisp-to-Java bytecode compiler has been hardened by
116     regression testing across Quicklisp libraries. 
117
118     **  Extensive interpreter/compiler bug fixes due to access to cl-test-suite [???] @antov
119     ** large objects (?!?)
120
121  *  The facility to construct runtime classes via JNEW-RUNTIME-CLASS (@astalla)
122
123    Pretty close to full coverage of primtives for creating synthethic
124    java classes at runtime.  Easy to extend with your needs; sensible
125    defaults.
126 
127    ** Fields
128    *** getter/setters
129    ** Annotations
130
131
132  * ASDF
133
134     ** Stock ASDF-2.26.6 which includes #+abcl conditional patches
135        for the URL-PATHAME and JAR-PATHNAME implementation extensions
136        to ANSI.
137
138  *  ABCL-CONTRIB
139
140     ** ABCL-ASDF
141
142        Network installation of binary artifacts named by Maven POM uris.
143
144        *** checks at runtime if a given class is present in the
145            accessible classloaders
146
147        *** If the check for the presence of a class fails, find a
148            maven-3.0.4 binary locally, execute its Aether connector
149            to retrieve its transitive dependencies from the network.
150
151      ** JSS
152         
153         Java Syntax Sucks.  q.v [lsw2]
154   
155         Extensive bugfixing wrt. method resolution [#229]
156
157      ** JFLI
158
159         A "captured from the wild" version of what @rich.hickey did before Clojure.

274  * User Manual now contains more polished formating from docstring
275    groveling, an index of symbols, and additional enhancements.

285
286Fixes
287-----
288
289  * [#181][r13718] The implementation now correctly loads ASDF definitions
290    from jar archives.  This had prevented the ABCL-CONTRIB loading
291    mechanism from working.
292

339
340 * ABCL works as an SBCL build host
341
342 * Huge (> 64k) literal object support (fixes CL-UNICODE support)
343
344 * The ABCL-ASDF contrib allows the specification of JAR-FILE or
345   JAR-DIRECTORY components that can be resolved via a PATHNAME.  The
346   MVN component bootstraps a Maven3 Aether connector to locally
347   replicate a versioned jar artifact for dynamic inclusion in the
348   CLASSPATH.
349
350Changes
351-------
352
353 * Renamed LispObject.writeToString() method to (more Lispy) printObject()
354
355 * New LispObject.princToString() for user readable output
356
357 * Changed behaviour of LispObject.unreadableString() to signal
358   errors when *PRINT-READABLY* is non-NIL
359
360 * Static initializers moved to <clinit>() (java: static { }) to
361   prevent repeated execution when invoking the constructor multiple times
362
363 * Compiler clean-ups
364
365 * Changed implementation of LABELS to eliminate the need
366   to *always* create a closure
367
368 * File compiler (COMPILE-FILE) clean-ups
369
370 * When calling a function with the wrong number of arguments,
371   report the expected (range) of arguments
372
373 * Upgraded ASDF to 2.017
374
375 * JSS:JLIST-TO-LIST now converts any java.list.List to a Lisp list.
376
377 * The ASDF extensions from JSS for the "jar-directory", "jar-file",
378   and "class-file-directory" types have been refactored into the
379   ABCL-ASDF contrib as well as the *ADDED-TO-CLASSPATH* variable
380   which records dynamically added dependencies.  Use the
381   JSS:ENSURE-COMPATIBILITY function to have JSS include these
382   dependencies. 
383
384*  As long as ABCL-ASDF:ENSURE-MVN-VERSION can dynamically introspect
385   and then load Maven 3 libraries at runtime, ASDF components of type
386   MVN can now be used to specify versioned JVM artifacts.
387
388 * Threads spawned by THREADS:MAKE-THREAD can terminate the Lisp image
389   via the EXT:QUIT and EXT:EXIT functions.

685
686* [svn r13111] Added a "tools" directory available in SVN repository

1080
1081* [svn r12447] SYS::*MODULE-PROVIDER-FUNCTION* now provides a mechanism
1082  to extend the REQUIRE resolver mechanism at runtime.
1083
1084* [svn r12430] Ant based build no longer writes temporary files to
1085  contain the Lisp build instructions.
1086
1087* [svn r12481] STANDARD-CLASS now has slots to be inherited by
1088  deriving metaclasses in support of the (in progress) work on
1089  metaclass.
1090
1091* [svn r12425] No longer ignore the METACLASS defclass option in
1092  support of the (in progress) work on metaclass
1093
1094* [svn r12422] SYS::*LOAD-TRUENAME-FASL* now contains the TRUENAME of
1095  the Java "*.cls" component when loading a packed FASL.
1096
1097* [svn r12461] Human readable Java representations for class cast
1098  exceptions for NULL and UNBOUND values.
1099
1100* [svn r12453 et. ff.] Large numbers of the implementation of Java
1101  primitives have been declared in a way so that a stack trace
1102  provides a much more readable indication of what has been invoked.
1103  Primitives which extend Primitive are prefixed with "pf_"; those
1104  which extend SpecialOperator are prefixed with "sf_".
1105
1106* [svn r12422] The internal structure of a jar pathname has changed.
1107  Previously a pathname with a DEVICE that was itself a pathname
1108  referenced a jar.  This convention was not able to simultaneously
1109  represent both jar entries that were themselves jar files (as occurs
1110  with packed FASLs within JARs) and devices which refer to drive
1111  letters under Windows.  Now, a pathname which refers to a jar has a
1112  DEVICE which is a proper list of at most two entries.  The first
1113  entry always references the "outer jar", and the second entry (if it
1114  exists) references the "inner jar".
1115
1116* [svn r12419] Ant 'abcl.release' target centralizes the build steps
1117  necessary for creating releases.
1118
1119* [svn r12409] Compiler now rewrites function calls with (LAMBDA 
) as
1120  the operator to LET* forms.
1121
1122* [svn r12415] CLASS-FILE renamed to ABCL-CLASS-FILE to prepare for
1123  (in progress) reworking of Stream inheritance.
1124
1125* [svn r123406] 'test/lisp/abcl/bugs.lisp' forms a default location to
1126  add unit tests for current bug testing.  The intention is to move
1127  these tests into the proper location elsewhere in the test suite
1128  once they have been fixed.
1129
1130* [svn r124040] Java tests upgraded to use junit-4.8.1.  Netbeans
1131  project runtime classpath now uses compilation results before source
1132  directory, allowing the invocation of ABCL in interpreted mode if
1133  the Ant 'abcl.compile.lisp.skip' property is set.  Java unit tests
1134  for some aspects of jar pathname work added.
1135
1136*  New toplevel 'doc' directory now contains:
1137
1138   + [svn r12410] Design for the (in progress) reworking of the Stream
1139     inheritance.
1140
1141   + [svn r12433] Design and current status for the re-implementation
1142     of jar pathnames.
1143
1144* [svn r12402] Change ABCL unit tests to use the ABCL-TEST-LISP definition
1145  contained in 'abcl.asd'.  Fixed and renabled math-tests.  Added new
1146  tests for work related to handling jar pathnames.
1147
1148* [svn r12401] The REFERENCES-NEEDED-P field of the LOCAL-FUNCTION structure now
1149  tracks whether local functions need the capture of an actual
1150  function object.

1381  * Changes on the lisp based build system for parity with Ant
1382  * Fixed interpreter creation in Java Scripting
